Impacts and Accomplishments

Ohio Sea Grant created a comprehensive website and placed four interactive kiosks at prominent Lake Erie shoreline tourism locations. Both products promote cultural and coastal tourism as tools to expand revenues and are valuable assets in encouraging the conservation and protection of important shipwreck sites.

Ohio Sea Grant and the City of Oregon surveyed local businesses and found that 37% of businesses plan to expand, thousands of jobs will be retained, and this could bring an estimated $1.7-2.9 million of personal income to the local economy. They city plans on using this to build an economic development strategy.

Ohio Sea Grant collaborated with Ohio State University Extension, the Toledo Chamber of Commerce and the Leadership Fund to develop and provide local government leadership education on economic, social and environmental sustainability to 30 public officials in 2019.

Ohio Sea Grant collaborated with the Ohio Township Association to offer leadership development workshops related to the local economy, society and environment to 124 elected and appointed officials. Enrolled professionals have the opportunity to receive up to ten contact hours from various professional organizations upon completion of the workshops.
